lol damn, talk about getting caught red handed! Man, I never trusted review scores, as I relied on the actual written content of the review to sort of give me an idea about whether I should or should not purchase a game.(Of course I don't always agree with the review...I bought Lair and loved it!)....but it seems you can't even rely on that these days...

I think I'll just stick to playing demos and listening to my friends to see if a game is worth the £40

Yea, I understand the tough position the reviewer is in, but just man up to what you did.

More controversy in the reviewing industry.

He might have been on a tight deadline but its not fair to the developer. IGN is well known and if a bad review goes up it will have an impact.
